Do you know someone who’s notorious for losing stuff? Maybe their keys, or wallet, or maybe even your child has a tendency to lose their favorite toy from time to time. If that happens I know it’s pretty hectic until the toy is found.
Guess what! You don’t have to worry about losing anything important anymore. Just tag it with Tile! Tile is a small Bluetooth tracking device that can be inserted or attached to anything. If and when that something gets lost, recovery is easier than ever.
Tile uses Bluetooth radio waves to communicate with a companion app that’s downloaded once you activate your Tile(s). Anytime the app discovers a Tile, it updates the Tile’s location and notifies you via the app. So for anything you have a Tile attached to, you’ll know its location.
Let’s take keys for example because my boyfriend is ALWAYS misplacing his keys. With Tile attached, if your keys are within 100 feet of where you are (standard Bluetooth range), Tile has the ability to communicate with the companion app and your phone will locate it. Simply ring the Tile and it will sound a tune, alerting you audibly of where it and the keys are.
If your keys are outside of the 100 feet range, you can check the companion app to see their last known location (the last time you and your keys were within 100 feet of each other). This allows you the opportunity to retrace your steps and find your keys. You’ll actually be able to see a map of the last known location and if you want, can even get directions how to get there from where you are.
There’s always the possibility that you get to the last known location and your keys aren’t there. No worries because Tile isn’t done helping yet! Using the companion app, you can enlist the help of the Tile community. If I’m a Tile user and happen to come across your lost keys or near them, the location of your keys and attached Tile will update and the companion app can alert you of that. How cool is that?!
The best part about this is that it all happens behind the scenes. I will never even know that I’m helping you find your lost keys, unless you send me an anonymous thank you, which is another cool feature of Tile.
Common Uses for Tile:
- Toys/Stuffed Animals
- Cell phone
Does your child have a favorite stuffed animal or toy that he just can’t live without, or even a favorite blanket? Some Tile users have inserted or sewn a Tile into the stuffed animal. So when your child loses said toy, it’ll be much easier to locate and reunite your child with his cherished friend. It would be just as easy to sew a Tile into one of the corners of your child’s favorite blanket. I mean, if you can avoid a hysterical toddler breakdown, then why wouldn’t you?
This makes me think of Toy Story 3 when Daisy’s family is traveling and they stop for a rest. Daisy falls asleep during the rest stop and her parents forget to grab her best toy friends when they get back on the road. One of those toys becomes a mean, crude, power hungry dictator at a local daycare, making other toys’ lives miserable. This could have been completely avoided if Daisy’s parents had Tile to keep track of her beloved toys and they could have been reunited with Daisy.

Now that I know you want a Tile or two (or 10! because I know you have someone in mind to gift some to), here’s where to get them. Simply visit Tile online and place your order.
There are actually two Tile design options to choose from. You can get a Tile Mate, which is designed for attaching to objects like a key chain and features a ring hole in one corner. This option is great for attaching to keys, backpacks, purses, etc.
Or you can choose a Tile Slim, which is thin enough to be slid into tight spaces, like a wallet. Its thickness is equivalent to that of two credits cards, so it’s pretty thin. You can even stick it to your laptop by using the double-sided adhesive face.
Both Tile Mate and Tile Slim range in price from $25 for one, to $130 for eight (35% savings). But my favorite deal, is the combo where you can get 2 of each for $70 (30% savings). Want more than that? No problem! There are also 8 count and 16 count combo options. Get the whole family covered!
